Why is Scottish football so terrible?

Scotland is better at rugby than at football. Also it's very one sided with rangers and Celtic always being at the top and being in their own league where they thump every team (most of the time) and Celtic usually end up being champions every year.

When covid 19 subsides the Scots should be giving more attention to rugby

    Depends what other leagues you compare it with. Scotland is a small country remember with a population of around 5 milllion compared to the 50 million that populate England. Therefore Scotland does not have as big a pool of players to choose from.

    You could turn round and say Croatia Has a population of just 4 million and Uruguay 3 million and they are both good teams that have always produced quality players but unlike Scotland they focus sheerly on football. Scotland is more divided with a lot of people opting to play rugby instead.

    You’ll notice countries like Croatia and Uruguay have never been good at rugby because the vast majority of their population choose football and football only. Hence why they normally do well for small nations.

    Every football supporter will tell you, it's in the blood to support your team through thick and thin.

    There is nothing to stop any supporter to follow both football and rugby, some do.

    Scottish football has nearly always been a two horse races between Celtic and Rangers except for a spell in the 80s when Alex Ferguson’s Aberdeen were genuine challengers. From 2011, it had been a one horse race with no one providing any challenge to Celtic. 

    However, they used to produce class players and the top English clubs of the 60s and70s particularly Liverpool , Man Utd and Leeds were packed Scottish stars ( Dennis Law, Lou Macari, Ian St John, Billy Bremner, Kenny Dalgleish, Peter Lorimer, Graeme Souness etc).

    However these days any Scottish players in the EPL play for strugglers like Norwich or West Ham. Foreign imports to the Scottish game is more than partly to blame.

    As for rugby, ha, ha, ha!

    They have as much change if winning the World Cup as the football team.

    Scottish football is real football, I find english football physically repulsive due to the billions pumped into it by SKY tv and the over the top wages paid to over hyped players in the english premier league. Disgusts me.

    Give me good honest Scottish football any day.
